Anyway two week back maam is deciding to do furniture moving. She say Sally you come help me we are moving this sofa. I think we are just pulling it but maam say no Sally we have to lift it because the sofa is scratching the floor. Maam is lifting one side. I am lifting other side. It is not very heavy and we are moving it.
I tell maam that I go rest and I will not go for day off on Friday. Maam say Sally just go rest we worry about that later. I am resting full day in my room. Next day I feel better but still little bit sleepy. But it is ok. I can do my work. But maam tell me Sally when your back hurt you please go lie down. Then she say it is ok Sally if you rest for two or three days. I not cut your day off for this.
I know I am lucky because maam is treat me well. Maybe she wait few days before doctor but at least she take me to doctor. And she buy for me medicine. And let me take two rest day and my day off in one week. She is usually good employer so I am lucky.
Few week back there is this story in paper. About how Dubai police is doing like this education for people about how to keep maid so she do not run away. Some things they are saying is this. Treat maid well. Pay maid on time. Do not let maid sleep in room outside house. If you leave maid alone she may do magic so do not leave her alone. Do all this so maid is happy and does not run away.
All this education is good. But I want to tell you what I am thinking. If the maid runs away and she breaks her contract she is deport and ban. Even if maid runs away because the employer is bad. The bad employer does not get ban. The bad employer will get another maid and his life is normal. but the maid if she runs away from the bad employer is finish. khalas.
So all this education on how to tread maid is good but it is of no use if there is no report card for the bad employer. This month my maams report card is A+
